Badía de Cadaqués

Badía de Cadaqués

The bay of Cadaqués forms Catalonian largest natural harbor. In summer boats and ships of all different sizes are anchored there. Who wants to go ashore though will be in need of a dinghy or otherwise has to use their swimming skills. The beach is narrow and stony, but who these days visits Cadaqués for swimming or beach activities?
The world famous " little fishing village" with approx. 1900 permanent residents, declare themselves as the gem amongst all other fishing villages along the Northern Costa Brava . During the fifties tourism established itself here and in many other coastal places. A phenomenon occurred though, cultural tourism probably being the reason for it. No other place in the world with comparable the same size has hosted so many artists who later became world famous eg. Matisse, Picasso, Duchamps, Man Ray, Max Ernst, André Derain, just to name a few.

Beautiful scenic. This must be such a pleasant place to visit, or even better to live.
